ParTY TimE!

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before but my parents live is the most amazing place...it is almost resort like.....and boy do I feel lucky to have parents that actually like having thier kids around.....so we hang out there often! Always welcome to stay for a long time or a short visit, bring friends and other family, eat and drink whatever we wish.....yes it really is the best........HOWEVER.........

I am telling you the more times I hang out with my parents the more concerned I am getting about my own sort of nonexistant...quiet...bordering on non existent social life!!!! lol

Here's the story, my parents have this ability to make friends wherever they happen to be.........and they are the ultimate host's.......always inviting people to their home....it is the continuous drop off spot for many people....young, old, male, female, dog, cat, relative or neighbour, friend or foe ........their door seems to be always swinging...there are always people at my parents home!

Now they will disagree.....I can just see my Mom right now saying.....well it's not usually like that...we have many quiet nights.....or this is the first time in our lives that we have had so many people stopping around...so many social engagements.....I don't know about this....because this social scene seems to be VERY very regular!!! lol

Take for instance the last 4 visits that I have paid my parents..........all different days of the week...all different situations and they all ended up with Michelle staying up way way too late and waking up way way too early......too much fun for their 30 something year old daughter........they are conditioned... my parents....yes just starting into their 6th decade, they are as spry as ever....the always incredible hosts, to an array of differing people.......drinks and food, great conversations...laughs and jokes...always ending in hugs and kisses and promises to be back soon.......and then don't be fooled, don't even think that there would be any lagging the next day....no siree....up and at it at 4:30am my Dad is and might I mention not the quietest man in the world..... so in the end his light sleeping daughter is usually awake as well.......

So all and all these visits always end with fun had by all....but man I need to come back to our boring abode just to catch up on some zzzz's....and get ready for whatever the next visit may hold........or I guess I could look at it like this....if I continue to have lots of visits, just think.... I should be just up to snuff by the time I reach my 6th decade and I can carry on the party time traditions.........hmmmm not sure what "T" will think of that!!

I am with you! I struggle to keep up with my parents too. Maybe this is just our right of passage M! By the time we get there we will be able to do it too. Too funny!
